  • 1 year ago

You have a nickname; your own filler words and you’re best known for your unique auctioneering style.

  1. You are widely known.
Everyone knows your name!
  1. You are renowned for specific filler words/ expressions.
‘Selling on top of the deck’ ‘the one gone by’ and ‘give it again there’.
  1. You wear specific attire along with your white auctioneering coat.
Dressed to the nines - a suit and tie!
  1. You have the ability to lip-read!
It would take someone like yourself to find out exactly those livestock dealers are saying half the time.
  1. You admit that you talk gibberish at times.
Does ‘fibbiddy bidddds g’wann ffforty-forrrty-forty-’ sound familiar?
  1. You have your own auctioneering style.
Slow and steady or fast and furious - which is it?
  1. You have acquired a nickname.
‘The chancy auctioneer’; ‘The one from The Midlands’ or ‘the one that goes like a train’.
  1. You know all too well that you have to be a judge of people and livestock to succeed in the profession.

There’s one demanding task.
